Description:*Introduction* KHATT: Handwritten Arabic Text was developed by King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals, Technical University of Dortmund and Braunschweig University of Technology. It is comprised of scanned Arabic handwriting from 1,000 distinct male and female writers representing diverse countries, age groups, handedness and education levels. Participants produced text on a topic of their choice in an unrestricted style. KHATT was designed to promote research in areas such as text recognition and writer identification. *Data* The majority of participants were natives of Saudi Arabia; the next largest group was from a collection of regional countries (Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia and Yemen). Most writers were between 16-25 years of age with high school or university qualifications. Scanned text is presented as tiff images scanned at 200, 300 and 600 DPI (dots per inch). The source images are four-page tiffs consisting of metadata about the writer, fixed paragraphs and free writing. Image files of isolated paragraphs or lines are also included. Ground-truth files are presented as plain-text Unicode. Data is divided into training, validation and test sets. *Samples* Please view this image sample and this text sample. *Updates* None at this time.
